    if the drug plaquenil which is being taken for skin lupus is causing acopecia as a side effect, is it something that will go away after the 6 month treatment or get worse. it seems one condition causes another, unless it is just a coincidence that acopecia came at the same time of taking plaquenil. Anybody have any experience in this area.
